About Us



ACTS targets the preparation and success of students in Algebra I, the gatekeeper to higher mathematics and college.
The effect of professional development on teaching and the subsequent achievement of students are studied in a research design that includes:

            Comparison of teacher baseline knowledge and post ACTS intervention knowledge and use of mathematics and pedagogy.
            Assessment of the integrity of implementation of ACTS teaching strategies in the classroom.
            Assessment of the value added in the classroom by tracking the rate of student achievement growth in targeted and control (wait-listed) classrooms.
            Assessment of the value added by tracking the induction of new mathematics and science teachers.
            Case studies of teacher and school implementation within one school site.
            Assessment of benchmarks of systemic change for both UCR and JUSD.


Mathematical ACTS is a multi-faceted research project designed around specifically tailored initiatives for teachers and students in the 4th - 9th grades.

ACTS seeks to raise achievement and close achievement gaps in mathematics for all Jurupa students through a series of programs (150 hours annually)
for teachers and students.
